Steel site plan gets approval.
The House of Lords rejected a rival developers' attempt to stop the plan.
The rivals argued the pounds 1billion scheme would harm shopping centres in Motherwell and Wishaw.
Law Lords ruled against them - but added the two towns would be "greatly" affected by the plan.
A shopping centre and 820 homes will be built on the 1,151-acre site.
Yesterday's ruling was hailed as a breakthrough.
Jim Fitzsimons, director of Ravenscraig Ltd, said: "This landmark decision by the House of Lords is tremendous news."
Scottish Retail Property Limited Partnership said: "We will now consider our legal position."
